Nebo- Yorkie Chihuahua Puppy

This little guy came in last week for his first puppy vaccinations. He is a Yorkie Chihuahua mix.  He has these longer tufts of fur on the sides of  his muzzle that is sort of unusual. 


Gus- long haired dachshund puppy

This little guy came in the other day for his puppy vaccinations.  7 weeks old. 2.2 lbs.  Long haired Dachshund.  He did weigh 2.3 lbs. before he went pee-pee on the table . . . .

On the same day, I found this little gem of a photo on Facebook that was too cute to not share.  

Thanks to Kayla Parker for sharing her photo.

PS for Penske.   It looks like we might be getting a therapy laser. Tell your Mom not to load up on laser sessions in the next week or so.


Opal- Shar Pei Puppy

Have a nice weekend, everybody.

This is Opal. A 11-12 week old SharPei puppy that came in the other day for her 2nd puppy vaccination.  We don't see too many of these around.   She came from the Atlanta area, I think.

Poor thing- about 20 minutes after getting her booster and getting back home- her head swelled up like a basketball.  Her eyes were red and swollen shut, muzzle all swollen, etc.  She had to get a shot of cortisone and benadryl.  She was fine, and the swelling was about half way gone by the end of the afternoon after a benadryl induced nap.   She could see a little. 

Next time, she'll get a dose or two of benadryl before getting her vaccine.


Ginger - 01/14/12

Ginger, Bert, and Rosie are officially listed on Petfinder to see if I can find them their furever home.

Here are a few video clips of Ginger from Saturday.  She would really like to run and play with Daisy, off the leash, when they are both outside.  I think she would listen and come to me, or would stay with Daisy, but am not 100% sure and am too chicken to try it yet. 


Happy New Year Everybody.

Yes, I realize that it is now the 10th of January.  Happy 10th of January, then. 

I had to look back to see what was last posted to begin to catch you up to speed.   I posted about KiKi on the 28th.  You saw a long video where Jimmy got out of his cage on the 27th.  Well, things have progressed rather quickly from there, and Jimmy is now walking outside on a leash, for about the last week.

Here he was barking while I was petting Bert.  This was on the 29th. 

The next day we stumbled onto the fact that Jimmy likes playing with a squeaky toy.  So much so that he seems to forget to be as scared as he was before.  He'll even venture out of his cage to retrieve the squeaky toy.

This was shot on the first of January.  Jimmy was making progress getting out of his cage.

I think it was the 3rd or 4th, that is was so cold.  Bert was outside and we tried to get a better photo of him. He didn't seem to mind the cold. You can see the whole set of photos here at Flickr. 

One the 3rd, Jimmy  tried going outside.  Ginger was out for a walk, and Jimmy was out in front of his cage, so we tried to see if he would walk to the door, or step outside. Depending on his mood.  We didn't try going too far from the door, just in case we needed to come back inside in a hurry.

On the 4th, Ginger went out for her midday walk, and I just happened to take the video camera with me.  You can see what she does.  This was the first time we had seen her do this.  She now does it everytime that she goes walking in the field.

It was also on this day, the 4th, the Jimmy ventured out of the building, and walked around outside. He was still a bit spooked by it all. Now he has gone on long walks and is doing better. I am still not sure that he would come to me if off the leash though. I uploaded this video to Vimeo as Youtube was taking so long to upload the previous one of Ginger.  Vimeo doesn't allow embedding of video without an upgraded account.  So it you want to see it, you'll have to watch it there at Vimeo.

So I think that gets you back up to speed on what has been going on around here for the past week.
